Support hub appeal 2022

When Terry cut his toe, he never imagined just a short time later, his leg would have to be amputated. Today, you can help us be there when life takes a turn for the worse.

Just last year he became dangerously ill when he developed blood poisoning – all because of a simple cut on his toe that could have happened to anyone.

What might have remained a minor injury become a major crisis when his immune system began to attack his body’s own tissue.

He was urgently admitted to the Royal Free Hospital, where the wonderful doctors and nurses saved his life. But to do this, his leg had to be amputated above the knee.

The support hub

Terry was referred to the Royal Free Charity’s support hub, a vital service providing urgent support to patients with long-term health conditions. Here, our advisor, Gabrielle, helped him access life-changing benefit payments. She also spoke to his employer about making adjustments for his disability and, through the council, even managed to find him a permanent home.

With the support hub’s help, Terry was able to turn his life around but right now the support hub is busier than ever. 

Every week, more patients like Terry are struggling with the aftermath of a medical crisis, and need our advice on the debt, poverty and isolation that happens as a result.
